Step-Wise detailed solution of dice puzzle
  • Since the last digit varies from 0 to 9 and the first digit from 0 to 3, which means 0, 1, and 2 must be there in each dice. 3 is not needed in both dice because in a month only 30 and 31st dates exist, so they can be made because we will have 1 and 0 in each dice.

how can you represent days of month using two 6 sided dice?
  • Now we have total sides = 6+6=12. Total numbers we want to have on dice are = 10 (0 to 9) + 3 (0 to 2) = 13. Here we have one extra number to represent. So to compensate for that no we use a trick here that when we rotate 6 it becomes 9, so we don’t need to write 9 on the dice.
    So now total sides = 12 and total numbers to write are also 12.
    The important thing here is that 0,1,2 must be there on both the dice, the rest we may put on any dice as per our convenience.

   Solution 1 :

                                       Dice1 : 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

                                       Dice2 : 0, 1, 2, 6, 7, 8.

   Solution 2 :

                                        Dice1 : 0, 1, 2, 3, 6, 7.

                                        Dice2 : 0, 1, 2, 4, 5, 8.

Similarly, any combination can be answered. We just need to take care that 0, and 1,2 must be there on both the dice.
